S1 / E11 - Dr Jo Daniels

Social Class Considerations within Clinical Psychology

Episode Overview

In this episode, Dr Jo Daniels talks about social class, the challenges of classism within clinical psychology, and her personal experience of working within the profession.

“I’m from what I would term as a working-class background myself; I think there's a choice that you have to make, where you either stay in yourself and connect with your roots and it becomes quite clear that you're from a different background, or you try and merge into the middle class and fit in, and by doing so you do compromise who you are”
